Editorial Reviews


"Illustrated by Ewa Podles in a digital format makes the story bright and colorful. I love the names of the family members. Chess Nut, Hazel Nut. Super cute. It's our current favorite bedtime story right now." -

"Another nice feature is the list of acorn facts on the last page.  This gives a parent or teacher an opportunity to take a fun book and turn it into a learning experience." -

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable concept, illustrations, and story! May 3, 2012
This review consists of 2 parts: 1. My son's review (he's 5.5) and 2. My review (the Mom). These are excerpts - for the full review visit us at our website.

**The Nutt Family by A. Muse was provided to us free-of-charge by the author.**


What I liked and disliked about it:

I really liked the pictures in the book, especially the picture of the family tree in their house and the one where they are floating in the water. But I didn't like the picture of the squirrel because I was scared the squirrel was going to eat them. I also really liked the story and their adventure especially when they are in the water. I liked that it was a story about a brother and sister because I have a sister too and we like to do things together too. We would look after each other too.

My bottom line:

I really liked this book. I would recommend it to both girls and boys my age.


What I liked and disliked about it:

There are many things that I really liked about this book. First, I love the illustrations: the Nutts are adorable and I really like how the illustrations are all from their perspective (i.e., everything looks BIG). I like the clever names given to the Nutts, especially Chess Nutt (ok, that one took me a while!) The story itself is very clever and engaging, combining the right level of tension with the touching loyalty and sibling love between the brother and sister. I also want to draw attention to and applaud the author for the inclusion of "fun facts" about acorns on the final page of the book. I really like the trend I'm seeing to include an educational component to children's books, especially ones targeting younger audiences (under 5 years of age).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun July 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nutt family Hazel and Fillbert, along with their children Chess and Praline lived in an old Maple tree. The children tied leaves around their necks like capes and pretended to be superheroes. One day a woodpecker, pecking on their home caused Chess to fall from his knothole. His sister Praline jumped out to help him. Soon they found themselves in a real life adventure. This is a wonderful story. I loved the way the author gave each acorn the name of a different type of nut. When I read about them tying leaves around their necks, I was reminded of my sisters and I tying scarves around our necks pretending we could fly as we jumped off of the porch. I also loved the facts at the end of the book about acorns. Even though I grew up with lots of oak trees, yet I was still able to learn a lot from this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars not very good. March 4, 2014

I was not very surprised at all. It was really really bad. My kids did "like" it though. I really didn't think it was that bad.

2.0 out of 5 stars 5 and 4 yr olds didn't enjoy it December 9, 2013

As an adult, i thought the story was just ok. It didn't seem to do anything to grab the reader's attention. When I asked the girls why they didn't enjoy it, both said the adventure was boring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute but... September 5, 2013
By UBizz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a cute little story but the formatting of the book on my Google Nexus did not work meaning that the pics were never on the same page as the words and so it was hard for my 2 year old to enjoy this one as much as should would have if she could have associated the illustrations with the words I was reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice story, but only on a big screen August 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately the text has been formatted in pictures, meaning it is not adjustable, and is illegibly small on my phone screen. I just read it to my toddler from the computer, though, and we liked it, for the most part. The pictures are good, and fit perfectly with the story, which describes sibling acorns who get raked away from home and have to find their way home by working together. In their previous imaginary adventures big brother Chess had always rescued little sister Praline, but when it comes to real trouble Praline takes a lead.

More About the Author

Angela was born in California to a military family. This meant that she got used to being the "new kid" in school every couple of years. It was hard trying to make new friends, but Angela discovered she had a knack for writing. In high school Angela began writing poetry and song lyrics. Expressing herself through writing seemed very natural. After becoming a Mom in 2003, Angela continued her storytelling to her own children. In 2009 she wrote and published her first rhyming children's book aimed at toddlers. Since then she has released several more children's picture books and released her first young adult romance series, The Alpha Girls, in 2012.

Angela's husband, Ben Muse writes suspense/thriller books that can also be found on Amazon.
